Climate Action Corner: Solar Investment Tax Credit Extended by Two Years!


  • The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows homeowners to install qualifying solar energy systems on their homes or businesses and claim a tax credit.

  • The residential ITC will be 26% in 2021 and 2022. It will drop to 22% in 2023 and then disappear in 2024 unless Congress acts to change this.

  • A tax credit is superior to a deduction as it directly reduces your tax payment (rather than lowering your adjusted gross income)
